As reported, M’Baye Niang has joined Montpellier on loan until the end of the season, as the 19-year-old passed his medicals last night.
“I’m very happy about joining Montpellier,” he commented. I don’t have any regrets about joining the Rossoneri,” he added. “My ambition is to return to Milan as a better player.”
However, L’Equipe claims that the French side have an option to buy him for €10 million next summer. Montpellier have also set their eyes on Zaccardo, whose contract expires in January 2016.
According to HITC Sport, Tottenham are interested in signing Milan’s defender Urby Emanuelson. The White Hart Lane outfit has been struggling down the left flank this season and Emanuelson could be a cost-effective option.
The former Ajax youth product, who is likely to leave on a Bosman deal next summer, spent six months on loan at Fulham last term.
Seedorf will become Milan’s coach after next year’s World Cup, an Italian television suggested. The deal was made between the player and the club’s president, Silvio Berlusconi, when the two met in Rome this week.
The broadcaster confirmed that the former Dutch international and the Rossoneri have signed a pre-contract agreement stating that he will assume his duties at the start of the next European season alongside compatriot and former teammate Jaap Stam as an assistant.
Gazetta dello Sport claims that Milan’s CEO Adriano Galliani is set to meet with the Ducth tactician tomorrow during his Brazil stay.
Milan are reportedly keen on bringing in recently sacked Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas to replace Massimiliano Allegri as manager of the San Siro side according to the Daily Mirror.
The Portuguese boss paid the price for big defeats to the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and West Ham this season as well as spending more than €100 million in the summer but failing to improve the squad. In fact, Vilas-Boas has already been contacted by the Rossoneri officials about the prospect of coaching the club.
However, it seems that he has fallen down the pecking order as Seedorf is in pole-position for the role.
Milan are interested in signing Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul. English newspaper The Sun reports Milan could swoop for the Nederland international next month in a bid to turn around their season.
Moreover, the Rossoneri’s veteran Christian Abbiati refused to rule out retirement this week.
Torino’s defender Danilo D’Ambrosio seems destined to move at the San Siro, as he has reached an agreement with the Rossoneri. However, a deal has yet to be agreed between the two Serie A clubs.
Torino target Antonio Nocerino, primarily offered, could be used as a bait. In case that doesn’t work, either one of Zaccardo, Saponara or Birsa could be included in the deal. In addition according to the latest reports that Galliani has tabled in a €500 000 bid in order to lure D’Ambrosio in January and has set his eyes on a summer move for winger Alessio Cerci.
This year’s Granata revelation D’Ambrosio, who has a contract expiring in June 2014, is expected to make an imminent Milan move once an agreement is reached.
Serie A outfit Milan have opened talks with Cagliari AWOL midfielder Nainggolan, according to Sky. Reports suggest that CEO Galliani has offered €5 million plus the co-ownership of Bryan Cristante in exchange of half of Nainggolan’s contract, but the Sardinians are willing to see an €8 million bid.
However, the latest reports claim that the two sides are on the verge of meeting halfway, reaching a €7 million plus Cristante agreement. In fact, Galliani is going to hold talks with Cagliari today so as to make the Nainggolan deal happen.
The Belgian international has long been linked with a move away from Sardinia, primarily with Inter, Roma, Juventus and Southampton interested. “Nainggolan will definitely go. Not even in January, he can go tomorrow,” Cagliari president Massimo Cellino stated regarding the fallout.
Milan’s officials held a meeting with Valmir Berisha’s agents last Friday. MilanNews.it says that il Diavolo are favorites to land the 17-year-old wunderkind, but the deal is still in stand-by.
“I can confirm that Milan has shown interest in me earlier but you never know what can happen in the future”, stated the rising star.
Swedish youngster Berisha, one of this summer’s FIFA u-17 World Cup revelations, has been dubbed the “next Ibrahimovic”.
